Ding Dong.... Round 3 ends with a big KO

I have truly ENJOYED this little challenge between Hannah and myself. It is hard to make up as many "things" as possible with supplies from someone else. If I had to put the package together... well I would like to think I would have been able to put ... well maybe not. I guess it is hard no matter what end you are on.
I was getting a little discouraged towards the end. I had originally planned to make a candy box and maybe a bag and tag but I didn't plan ahead enough.

What I did plan on was having fun and that I had tons of! All together I made 13 cards. Wow, really? 13? That is pretty impressive if I say so myself...and I do!!!
I do have some advise for those of you thinking of doing something similar. DON'T! No just kidding. My advise is do a "plus 2" card bases don't count. Hannah and I did a "plus 1" and it is very hard. As soon as you stamp something you have used up your one. whew, tough. But FUN!

Thank you Hannah. Can't wait till we spar again!!

till then, ENJOY! the Oz


  1. These are super yummy Linda. You are so talented!

  2. I'm sooooo impressed with your cards! What a fun challenge for both of you...I'm sure Hannah wouldn't mind a rematch!

  3. Impressive!! These cards are fab!


  4. Glad you enjoyed the challenge Linda, you have made some fab cards!!

  5. Fabby cards, Oz, fabby cards!!!

  6. Wow, I can't believe all the fantastic things you made with those winnings!

  7. WOW! So many fabulous cards! I'm soooo impressed!

  8. I think you two did an awesome, awesome job! Since you used up all the supplies, was there anything you could recommend I put in future kits? Or anything you wished was there? All feedback would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! Deborah

  9. Hi Linda,

    Just thought I'd pop in to say love the cards that you have done for the Linda v Hannah challenge. Also today I got your card (we got back from our "hols" today) & lovely gift. Thank you so much xoxoxoxoxoxo

  10. That sounds like a lot of fun! What a great challenge.
    As far as my little lamps, go for it and have fun.
    Some of the issues I came across while making them, is that if you use 1 long sheet of vellum, it puckers when you fold it! So my advice would be to line each panel with it's own section of vellum for the liner. I used my pendant die cut from Spellbinders to cut the shapes, and then glued the negative space cut area onto the vellum. I made mine 2x2x2x2, but I would make them larger next time because the flame felt a little close for comfort. I like the one with the text, you could print personalized messages on plain vellum and have a really special candle holder! Have a great weekend, hope to see you out and about in cyberland!

  11. Hilarious! Like a little oasis of fun and inspiration! These are top notch, OZZY-fun! Bravo, you craft goddess! I love you, sista! Missed you like a crazy nut-job! Oh, wait! I AM a crazy nut-job! Doh!


Please take a moment, knowing you stopped just makes me giddy!
